Geisenheim Grape Details

Geisenheim (aka. Geisenheim GM318-57)

Geisenheim is a white wine-producing cultivar derived from a hybrid of Riesling and Chancellor parentage. The vine is moderately winter hardy, and has been grown with some success in Nova Scotia by German born Hans Christian Jost of Jost Vineyards. In this Canadian province, it is typically used to make dry, and off-dry white wines, and is occasionally used in a supporting role in Icewine.
